FRANKFORT — The Senate Transportation Committee approved a bill Wednesday to allow motorless, slow-moving vehicles like Amish buggies to use reflective tape instead of safety triangles.

Some Amish object to the triangles for religious reasons.

Senate Bill 75, sponsored by Sen. Ken Winters, R-Murray, now goes to the full Senate for its consideration. The House Transportation Committee is considering a similar bill.
